Paulie Malignaggi Stars in Omerta: The Act of Silence (Movie Trailer Video)

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Oh man, you guys. WATCH IT! Watch the trailer for Paulie Malignaggi's film Omerta: The Act of Silence!


Oh man, you guys.

Oh man.

I haven't looked forward to possibly seeing a movie this much since I don't even know when. I absolutely have to see Omerta: The Act of Silence. I fancy myself a very amateur, very crappy movie reviewer in my occasional spare time. If I can get a copy of it, I promise a full, legitimate movie review of Omerta: The Act of Silence. This is a must-see film for me. I love mob movies, I love when athletes take on acting roles (particularly starring roles in low-budget films), and I love B-movies. I cannot be without this film.

As for Malignaggi, if you missed the news, he's taking that fight in Ukraine against Vyacheslav Senchenko, after initially balking about the money or the location or whatever else. It's a make-or-break kind of fight for him, but don't feel bad if he loses (and he might legitimately lose, before we start writing the Paulie wuz robbed stuff) -- he's got a long career ahead of him elsewhere. Probably not in acting, but definitely in boxing broadcasting, where he's a natural and a very good analyst.
